Njweedman charged with "cyber-bullying" Trenton, NJ police officer.
Edward Forchion / Trenton police officer Herbert Flowers
TRENTON >> NJ Weedman resorted to slut-shaming Mercer County prosecutors after he was indicted for calling a Trenton Police officer a "pedophile" in a tense encounter caught on tape earlier this year.
"What if I called [Prosecutor} Stephanie Katz a slut?" marijuana activist Ed "NJ Weedman" Forchion said when he learned from a Trentonian reporter he was indicted for cyber-harassment. "If I called Stephanie Katz a slut, her husband would have every right to come beat me up. But they couldn't indict me or arrest me for it, legally. But that's what they just did with me calling Officer [Herbert] Flowers a pedophile. And I double down. Pedophile. P-E-D-O-P-H-I-L-E."
Forchion was indicted this month on a single count of fourth-degree cyber-harassment over the May 10 incident with Flowers, which was captured on film and later posted online.
The charge carries up to 18 months in prison for Forchion, who is already facing seven years in the slammer in his drug case.
A grand jury foreperson signed the true bill Sept. 15, according to records obtained by The Trentonian. Read news story here - http://www.trentonian.com/article/TT/20160929/NEWS/160929697
